The Klontoey Kindergarten experience was more than just twenty five hours of teaching.  This school is located in a poor area of Bangkok.  It opened my eyes to the lack of education resources available to students and showed me I make certain assumptions based on economic status. I first came to realize this one the […]

On our first trip to the Klong Toey kindergartens, the first thing I noticed was how impoverished the surrounding houses were. Also, my group and I became more and more anxious because we felt that we had not prepared enough to keep the children entertained and happy. Upon arriving, we were surprised at how young […]

Klong Toey was one of the most memorable experiences of my life. I learnt many things while doing this GCW course about myself and also about the environment in which the kids live in. I normally wouldn’t have chose this course as an option since I’m not that good with kids but I am really […]

They […]

This GCW trip was more than just a direct community service activity for me; I gained much more than I expected. Through this trip, I learned more about the roles of the Human Development Center and its importance. Though I have participated in activities involved with the Mercy Center, I have never been to the […]

During these 5 days remarkable days I did not just learn from this course, but this course have transformed me into a new person. To answer Mr. Harper’s question “’ Are you the same person you were before you enter this course’” My answer would be, no I am the same person I was before […]

I went to Klongtoy kindergarten during this GCW. I could learn many things and grow from this rare experience. In these, made most strong impressions on me is “children are rewarded if one tries to understand them seriously” and “to make a plan is very important.” First day, there are many surprised things for me.
